Charleston Gaillard Center & Buxton Books Present: A Conversation with Erik Larson

The world is eagerly awaiting the next book release from Erik Larson, the New York Times bestselling author of titles like The Splendid and the Vile, The Devil in the White City, and In the Garden of Beasts.

Arriving April 30, 2024, The Demon of Unrest “brings to life the pivotal five months between the election of Abraham Lincoln and the start of the Civil War,” a timely story from American history with deep ties to Charleston.

Spend an evening with Erik Larson, just minutes (and a boat ride) away from where “the passions of North and South came to focus on a lonely federal fortress in Charleston Harbor: Fort Sumter.”

Coming to the Gaillard Center May 16, 2024 at 7:30 pm.
